WiFi Testing

The very convenience and flexibility of WiFi introduces unique risks.

WiFi penetration testing is important for organisations with large-scale wireless network infrastructure in New Zealand.

What will you gain from WIFI testing?

  • Understand the real risks from your wireless deployment.
  • Ensure your systems can withstand a motivated and highly skilled attacker.
  • Receive detailed and prioritised mitigation strategies to increase your ability to identify and repel attacks.
  • Receive a comprehensive report outlining the security exposures of your wireless network, including high impact recommendations and root causes.
  • Enhanced protection of your business intelligence, data and IT systems, brand and reputation in New Zealand.

How Tesserent tests your WIFI:

All our security testing is fully customised to your environment and deployment model. We have developed a proven methodology to test for wireless security flaws which includes:

  • Wireless network identification including wireless fingerprinting, information leakage and signal leakage.
  • Encryption weaknesses such as encryption cracking, wireless sniffing and session hijacking.
  • 802.1x authentication attacks, de-authentication and brute force attacks, both online and offline.
  • Access control bypass techniques like NAC bypass, Firewall bypass and Denial of Service bypass.
  • Client attacks such as rogue access points, end user exploitation and session hijacking.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Wifi testing in cybersecurity?

Wifi testing, also known as wireless security testing, is a process of assessing the security of a wireless network by identifying vulnerabilities and potential security weaknesses.

Why is Wifi testing important in cybersecurity?

Wifi testing is crucial in cybersecurity as wireless networks are often the weakest link in an organisation's security. Hackers can use vulnerabilities in a wireless network to gain access to sensitive information, steal data, or even launch a cyber-attack.

What are some common vulnerabilities in wireless networks?

Some common vulnerabilities in wireless networks include weak passwords, outdated firmware, unsecured access points, and unencrypted data transmission.

What are the types of Wifi testing?

There are several types of Wifi testing, including wireless penetration testing, wireless vulnerability scanning, wireless packet analysis, and wireless encryption testing.

What is wireless penetration testing?

Wireless penetration testing is a type of testing that involves attempting to exploit vulnerabilities in a wireless network to gain unauthorised access. The goal is to identify and address potential security weaknesses before a real attacker can exploit them.

What is wireless vulnerability scanning?

Wireless vulnerability scanning is the process of scanning a wireless network for known vulnerabilities and weaknesses. It involves using automated tools to identify potential security risks in a wireless network.

What is wireless packet analysis?

Wireless packet analysis is the process of analysing the packets of data that are transmitted over a wireless network. The goal is to identify any potential security issues, such as unauthorised access or data leakage.

What is wireless encryption testing?

Wireless encryption testing is the process of testing the security of a wireless network's encryption. The goal is to identify any weaknesses in the encryption and determine whether an attacker could potentially bypass it.
